Sophia Bush Talks Crossing a 'Complex Line' in Police Drama 'Acts of Violence' (Exclusive)

By

Sophia Bush may have turned in her badge and gun on Chicago P.D., but she isn't done playing detective quite yet. In Acts of Violence, Bush stars as Detective Baker, who is investigating a human trafficking ring with her partner (played by Bruce Willis). The sh*t hits the fan when they become embroiled with a man who has set out to save his kidnapped fiancée -- by any means necessary.

"I think it's a complex line when we're exploring what's happening to this family and, obviously, the very human desire -- the primal desire -- to protect your own, to do what's right, to rescue the wounded, the defeat the bad guys," Bush explains in this exclusive clip.

Acts of Violence explores how far is too far and when one should turn a blind eye. "There comes a point when I think anybody, even sworn officers, say, 'How much is too much? When do we abide by the law to the point that we allow innocent people to be victimized and killed?'" Bush says. "That's where it gets interesting. That's where we get into the classic action movie universe where we push limits and we tell this crazy story."
